Beautiful secluded beach. Shore is a bit rocky, which can be dangerous if the surf is rough; but other than that, it's a great beach. The entrance is hidden; there's a security booth to a gated community that you have to go trough to get...More

This a lovely beach. Very few people were enjoying the beach on the day we were there, likely because it was off-season. All the better for us. Sunbathing, snorkling, walking and fishing were amazing. The water was clear and warm. What more can any one...More

Wonderful unexploited beach. The access is quite difficult. A car is needed to get there. But once you get there, you'll have one of the most wonderful beaches of the island. If you want to spend the whole day there, ensure you bring food and...More

Love this beach. Quiet and almost empty during the week. NO services or amenities. Bring a cooler and your beer and you will be in heaven!

This is definitely our favorite beach on St. Martin. On weekdays you can have the entire beach to yourselves. On weekends, a few locals visit but it is still quiet and romantic. The area to the right is best for snorkeling. The water is clear...More

This beach is located in Terres Basses (The Lowlands). Once you find it, it has ample parking and the beach is a short walk. Snorkeling is best to the right side and be careful entering the water as rocks are nearly everywhere. The beach is...More
